Close to 10,000 people will join a walk around Hoan Kiem Lake on June 13 to celebrate the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi.
The information was released at a press conference in Hanoi on June 9.
The participants, including students and school children, athletes and their coaches, foreigners and the staff from Hanoi-based embassies and consulate general, will walk along the main streets around Hoan Kiem Lake.
A similar walk was held in Ho Chi Minh City in mid-May, which left a deep impression on the city’s citizens.
The programme has been co-organised by the Vietnam Sports Newspaper and the Hanoi Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and sponsored by Vietnam Television, the Vietnam Sports Newspaper and Q-Mobile, an arm of the An Binh Telecom Company./.
